Userlane overview

Userlane is a GPS system for software. When you drive your GPS helps you go from A to B without checking any maps. Userlane allows anybody to immediately understand and operate any software without any form of formal instructions such as training, video tutorials, manuals, or documentation.

Userlane allows you to create on-screen interactive guides that guide users through features and processes in real time within the software itself so that they don't need to abandon the platform to look for information or support.

WIth Userlane you can create: Guided onboarding tours (AKA walkthroughs) and a library of guides that can be recalled by the users who need support.

Userlane guides are represented by a simple overlay that goes on top of the uppermost layer of any software interface and creating guides does not require any coding or technical know-how. Anybody can create guides in minutes without changing anything in the software itself.

On-screen guides are used to create onboarding tours, train users or support them.

There are three main use cases on top of a series of other applications.1. User onboarding, 2. Staff onboarding/Staff Training, 3. Support / Customer Success.

It has been a great experience implementing Userlane in our software and working with the team at Userlane. Userlane Editor is very well-designed and user-friendly. I like how quick and simple it is to record a tutorial - I only need to click what I want my end-users to go through and ta-da a tutorial is created! I also like that I can provide additional information to the users, link each step out to a relevant article in our Help Center, add images, GIFs, emoji to my tutorials making it much more friendly to the end-users. I can also preview the tutorial before publishing it. We are now using Userlane for our product releases, but will be using Userlanes for trial user, new user onboarding, and staff training as well. The Customer Success team is extremely friendly and very responsive. I can reach out to them via email or livechat and they are always happy to help. Big shout-out to executives who have been super responsive.

My overall experience is very positive; the people work hard and the product is great to use. It's easy to share and collaborate on the lanes and it is very user-friendly.I really enjoyed how easy this product is to use; as soon as I had it running I was able to make my first lane relatively quickly. I also like how the style of the lanes are completely customisable and can be changed to match the style and feel of the company I work for. On top of the product being great, the people who work at Userlane are very nice and friendly, and have responded quickly to my questions. Every time I spoke to someone, they were extremely helpful and guided me in the right direction.

It is really simple to use and one can implement userlanes without programming knowledge. The user experience is designed to be easy and could be described as the IPhone or IOS for onboarding.
